Which is the better offensive duo in their prime?

Imo very close between the duos in terms of skill and impact but I think Curry and Jokic's offensive games mesh slightly better together.

I don’t have an answer but this made me want to imagine Larry using off-ball screens and Magic exploiting the slightest of windows that Bird creates inevitably with his outstanding movement and gravity as a scorer. There’d be so many times where the defender turns his head and tries to follow Larry coming up from a screen only to find that Bird backcut him and Magic threw a pass right next to his ear for the easy layup.
